The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction in collaboration with the University of North Carolina TEACCH® Autism Program are offering several professional development opportunities entitled Foundations of Autism.

The workshops include Learning Styles and Visual Supports geared towards assisting the novice (1st or 2nd year) self-contained classroom teacher and instructional assistant working with students with Autism (AU) and Teaching Through Engagement which focuses on the continued use of specially designed instruction as well as the process of teaching strategies and restructuring activities based on understanding the student’s learning styles and development and A Coaching Framework which is similar to the previous workshops but will be geared specifically for Autism Coaches, or those who are in a position to support and coach teachers in providing services to individuals with autism. CEU’s are available.
